We attempt to determine the rotational and magnetic-related activity properties of stars at different stages of evolution.We focused our attention primarily on members of clusters and young stellar associations of known ages. In this study, our targets are 6 young loose stellar associations within 100pc and with ages in the range 8-70Myr: TW Hydrae (∼8Myr), beta Pictoris (∼10Myr), Tucana/Horologium, Columba, Carina (∼30Myr), and AB Doradus (∼70Myr). Additional rotational data for alpha Persei and the Pleiades from the literature are also considered. Description: Rotational periods of stars exhibiting rotational modulation due to photospheric magnetic activity (i.e., starspots) were determined by applying the Lomb-Scargle periodogram technique to photometric time-series data obtained by the All Sky Automated Survey (ASAS). The magnetic activity level was derived from the amplitude of the V lightcurves. The statistical significance of the rotational evolution at different ages was inferred by applying a two-sided Kolmogorov-Smirnov test to subsequent age-bins. File Summary:

Note (2): Notes as follows: a = TYC 5882 1169 1: although previously classified as a member of the Tuc/Hor association, it is proposed by Torres et al. (2008, ASP Monograph Publications, 5, 757, [arXiv:0808.3362]) as high-probability member of Columba association. b = HIP 32235: and HIP 33737 are members of Tuc/Hor according to Zuckerman & Song (2004ARA&A..42..685Z). In the present study, they are assumed to be members of Carina according to Torres et al. (2008, ASP Monograph Publications, 5, 757, [arXiv:0808.3362]).
